The Origins of Excellence 

Turkish coffee wasn't developed by Mehmet Efendi by any means and coffee beans were sold as green beans with coffee drinkers traditionally roasting and grinding at home. Mehmet Efendi had the brilliance to realize the value of making customers lives easier and provide uniform, quality coffee roast to the general Turkish population.

In 1871 roasting was done by him and through grinding with a simple pestle and mortar delivering ready to make ground coffee to customers.

The shop enjoyed tremendous growth, but something more was necessary to break out into a brand. After Efendi's death, the three names of Hasan Selahattin, Ahmet Riza and Hulusi are of prominence, the coffee roaster's son. With enterprise and hard work, the three brothers took the famous Kurukahveci term to a new meaning.

Realizing importance of mass production, international markets and quality control each son took on a new responsibility and together they developed one of the most famous coffee brans in the world today.

Much of the success Efendi's grandchildren have today was realized by the brothers through international marketing initiatives, new manufacturing methods and quality maintenance.
